It all started when…

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit Southeast Asia, in the summer of 2016. It was on that trip that Radiate came about. During our trip, we visited and volunteered with a ministry that exists to rescue, restore, and empower women ensnared by the sex trade. A physical demonstration of how they do that, is by teaching the women how to hand make products. As soon as I saw the beautiful handmade aprons, dolls and jewelry, I knew that I had to introduce these things to the states.

But how does that even look? What does that even mean? Full of passion and big dreams, I was left frustrated upon my arrival back home. It has taken over a year to watch all of this unfold. You see, it goes way beyond the products. If all I'm doing is starting a business selling items, I'm missing it! For as long as I can remember all that I've wanted to do and be is, to create change.

The beautiful thing about Radiate is that you guys get to create change too! Each time you buy something from us, you're bringing hope to artisans worldwide!  From the bottom of my heart,

Thank you!
